|Gulliver's Travels 1996 TV, 188 min.|
Director: Charles Sturridge
Cast: Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, James Fox, Ned Beatty, Edward Fox, Robert Hardy, John Standing, Alfre Woodard, Geraldine Chaplin, Peter O'Toole, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Phoebe Nicholls, Karyn Parsons, Edward Petherbridge, John Wells
An all-star cast, Jim Henson's special effects, and good performances make this made-for-TV miniseries a joy to watch and is probably the most faithful retelling of the Jonathan Swift social satire. Lemuel Gulliver (Ted Danson) returns home to Mary (Mary Steenburgen) after a long absence and acts out his wild adventures that include the tiny Lilliputians, the huge Brobdingnags, the Laputas (the no-common-sense scientists), and the intelligent horses surrounded by wild humans.
|The Ladies Man 2000 R, 85 min.|

Based on his "Saturday Night Live" character, Tim Meadows brings to the big screen Chicago radio love doctor Leon Phelps–complete with leisure suit and giant Afro haircut. No one said it is easy to transform a short comedy sketch into a full-length movie. But, that doesn't mean there are not some good laughs in this one.
